Windows 7: Intermittent Crashes & BSOD's

Intermittent Crashes & BSOD's


I hope someone will be able to help, I have a computer that I am having some random crashes and every so often it BSOD's.

The specs of the machine are as follows;

PSU: Coolermaster Silent Pro M1000 1kw
Mobo: Gigabyte X58A UD3R
Processor: Intel Core i7 920
RAM: 3 x 2gb OCZ Gold 2,000mhz
Graphics 1: NVidia GeForce GTX470 (Running 2 x 1920x1080 monitors via DVI)
Graphics 2: NVidia GeForce GT210 (Running 3rd 1920x1080 monitor again via DVI)
Hard Drive 1: Intel X25-M G2 80gb SSD
Hard Drive 2: 2 x Barricuda's in RAID0 (data drive)
OS: Windows 7 x64 Pro

The crashes seem to be random and when they happen the computer just stops responding to any input, mouse included. No key combination does anything nor is there any hard drive light flashing.

The BSOD's are a bit less frequent but when they do happen the error message is this; KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

I have used a liitle program called WhoCrashed to see if I could fix the problem myself and although its telling me the crash is related to ntoskrnl.exe it doesnt give any further info and looking in google sends me on a wild goose chase.

The full dump can be downloaded here

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 7A, {20, ffffffffc000009d, fffffa8009bd77c8, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+51140 )

The requested page of kernel data could not be read in.  Typically caused by
a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see
If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
Arg1: 0000000000000020, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: ffffffffc000009d, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: fffffa8009bd77c8, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: 0000000000000000, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

I have enabled Driver Verifier but it has not made the system BSOD, all it has done is make it unbareably slow.

When I try to play Homefront which usually works at 60fps with vsync enabled it runs at 3fps lol

I have redone the dump log thingy and reuploaded it here

I had the same blue screen today so I thought I would repost the dump file, any help would be appreciated.

The BSODs were caused by xfire.exe, a process that was running at the time of the crash. Remove Xfire from your system
